7 Reasons Why Living In North Carolina Is The Best North Carolina

Superbly diverse landscapes, delicious cuisine, and the most genuine people, life in North Carolina is without a doubt absolute bliss. Residents live by their state’s motto, “Esse quam videri” meaning “to be, rather than to seem”. We couldn’t agree more; North Carolina doesn’t just seem like the best state to live in, it truly is! Here are just a few reasons why we love living in NC:

  1. You can watch the sun rise above the ocean…

    If there was ever a good reason to get out of bed before daylight (and there are very few) it’s to experience the breathtaking views of a Carolina sunrise at the beach.

  2. …. and set over the mountain tops

    Where else is this possible?! Admiring the morning light with your toes buried in the crisp sand to then watching that same sun retreat as you dangle your feet over the edge of a mountain. These indigenous landscapes are distinct to NC.

  3. You can wear flip flops practically all year long

    That’s right, 365 days of pure foot freedom! This depends of course on the region of North Carolina, but for the most part, temperatures along the coastline don’t sink low enough for frostbite.

  4. The best BBQ…..ever.

    Standing out from all other southern cuisine, is the perfected North Carolina BBQ. There’s a reason restaurants across the world refer to their BBQ as “Carolina-style”, we made it best! It’s more than a mouth watering meal, BBQ is a cultural tradition in the state. The annual Lexington Barbecue Festival brings together more than 160,000 people for good music, games, and the best BBQ in the world.

  5. You don’t have to travel far for a vacation

    There’s a reason North Carolinians are such kind and upbeat people, they live in the ultimate vacation spot! From outdoor adventures in the Blue Ridge Mountains, to ski resorts, to lounging on the beach, NC provides accessible vacations for everyone without needing the extra travel time!

  6. Top of the line fishing

    North Carolina is a fisherman’s dream. More than 300 miles of Atlantic coast, cold mountain streams, 57 lakes, and countless local ponds lure both fish and anglers to NC waters.

  7. The people are as sweet as the tea

    It’s true, some say it’s in the water but here in NC we know it’s all about the sweet tea! Take away the tea, and you’re still left with some of the most polite and kind people in the country.

Growing up in various states along the east coast, I've developed a love of all things local. I currently live in North Carolina and wouldn't move for anything! I love the beach, animals, and creating my own adventures. I encourage everyone to travel and never be afraid to fail.
